Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Dead dreams to another land

In the attics of my life
Full of cloudy dreams unreal
Full of tastes no tongue can know
And lights no eye can see
When there was no ear to hear
You sang to me

I have spent my life
Seeking all that's still unsung
Bent my ear to hear the tune
And closed my eyes to see
When there were no strings to play
You played to me

In the book of love's own dream
Where all the print is blood
Where all the pages are my days
And all my lights grow old
When I had no wings to fly
You flew to me

You
flew
to me

In the secret space of dreams
Where I dreaming lay amazed
When the secrets all are told
And the petals all unfold
When there was no dream of mine
You dreamed of me
("Attics of My Life by Robert Hunter @1970-2007)

Hi Ashes: A beautiful song by Hunter...I'm glad you posted the words because all this time I thought the line was 'where all the print was blurred' ...I've been looking through the Hunter set list archive for a version he sang in concert but no luck so far...
p.s. Hope you don't mind if I just add a thanks to Bryan for his R & J excerpt here
